Curbed – Weekend Open House: Welcome to Yorklandia? Highland Park Craftsman is a Lifestyle, Not Just a House

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Open House: Sunday, November 3rd, between 1 PM – 4 PM

1817 North Avenue 51, Highland Park
Price: $ 689,000
Beds, Bath: 3 beds, 2 baths
Floor Area: 1,599 sq. ft.
Per the Listing: “Not a home, house, dwell, abode or pad. This is a sanctuary. A space where people gather around the cozy fireplace in winter, some stealing first kisses. Sumptuous meals prepared with love in the ample kitchen. Wishes buried under the grand Oak in back. Laughter heard around the fire-pit in springtime, and plans for a future drawn in the detached designer’s studio. Master suite/bath opens to a intimate garden of earthly delights. A door opens to expose a twisting stairway to a secret attic bedroom of surprises. This custom restored home has literally risen from the ashes of 2010. Graced with an incredible aesthetic, and a desire to build this home for generations to come, our client created this peaceful nest. Step out and walk minutes to the new grooviest street in the city, York Blvd. , gateway to Yorklandia. Nosheries. Boutiques. Art. Vibes. Swagger and NELA art walk~~~all so close, and when you shut that door, all so very far away.”

The listing is provided by Deirdre Salomone of Keller Williams who should really win some sort of writing award for this listing. We’ve heard the Yorklandia moniker before, but we never really believed in it until Deirdre made us believe. All of our hopes and wishes are buried beneath that oak tree, next to the spot where we’ll keep our backyard beehive.

WEST HOLLYWOOD: Racked takes a spin around Joyrich’s over-the-top Melrose flagship. Just like Japan’s hyperactive capital, the LA clothing brand and retailer’s space is oozing with creativity and provides shoppers with an insane amount of inspiration.

ONLINE: Pressed Juicery has launched a lifestyle site named The Chalkboard that features recipes, mantras, fitness tips, and interviews with pretty, uber-healthy folks. If the site seems to have a heavy fashion slant, that’s because EIC Kate Mulling boasts a resume that includes stints at Refinery29 LA and WhoWhat Wear.

WEST HOLLYWOOD: Spinning chain SoulCycle has set a date for its first LA location. The studio will open February 10; until then interested parties can stop by the SoulCycle Lifestyle shop next door.
